In search of a playful cuddlebug who will also be your partner in crime for any adventure? Not to worry – trusty Tinker is just the kind of lady for you! Tinker is a happy-go-lucky pup with more than enough enthusiasm to make all those around her smile and fall in love with her. She absolutely adores meeting people and getting some well-deserved head scritches and pets for being such a lovely lady! At home, she enjoys curling up and napping next to her foster parents while they work or following them around the kitchen.

Tinker loves playing fetch with her tennis balls and chasing her human around in a friendly game of tag! One of her favorite toys is her alligator squeaky toy, and she will often greet you with Mr. Alligator if she wants to play or get some attention or cuddle time. Tinker also loves a good game of tug-of-war and her perfect pile of toys would include rope toys and durable hard chew toys! As she is still young, she can be mouthy at times but is very receptive to training and can be taught not to.

Tinker behaves very well around cats and dogs in addition to people. She always has a pep in her step and a tail wagging in the air on walks, and enjoys greeting other friendly dogs. Tinker currently lives with two cats in her foster home and likes to follow them around and observe what they do, but is respectful of their space and does not chase them or bark at them.

Unless distracted on a walk by a human she just HAS to meet, this princess walks beautifully on leash. She is a very quick learner and currently knows Sit, Down, Stay and Drop It, and her foster family is working on teaching her more! Tinker is a lovable, goofy, snuggly ball of fluff who will fill your life with unconditional love and tinker any sad moment into a happy memory!
